The purpose of this survey is to update results from our 2015 survey, help evaluate current debate practice norms in LD, and distinguish between varying practices beyond a broad approach like “disclosure good” vs. “disclosure bad.” Coaches may respond based on their students practices.
What do you think? Comment below your thoughts and suggest future questions we should ask judges, coaches, and students about LD norms and practices.
*E.g. withholding a newly-broken aff, disclosing only positions you’d read against teams that read disclosure theory, etc.
